🌠4. Of course, this increible cave with an amazing story!!
TO FEEL WHAT AN EVENT IS LIKE, LOOK AT THIS SHORT YOUTUBE VIDEO:
“Iwafune Shrine worships Nigihayashi no Mikoto. Nigihayashi no Mikoto came to this place from the air by Ame no Iwafune. Then Ame no Iwafune became a huge rock 12m x 12m in dimension.”
THE CAVE WALK WILL TAKE ABOUT 20 ~30 MINUTES. ITS DARK AND YOU MUST HAVE SUITABLE SHOES (RUNNERS, WALKING SHOES…NO SANDALS OR HEELS).
WE WILLL ENTER THIS CAVE TOGETHER, ITS DARK, NARROW AND A BIT SLIPPERY BUT EVERYONE CAN DO IT!!
Since the medieval era, many practitioners of Shinto’s Shugendo sect go in the cave for training their bodies and cleansing their souls.
